Perfect Crispy Breakfast Potatoes

Secrets for perfect crispy breakfast potatoes (vegan)

Hey hey! I hope you had a lovely weekend! This past week has been a whirlwind, as it was Fashion Week here in San Francisco! After several weeks of severe FOMO because of New York and London’s Fashion Weeks, it was fun to be able to attend some runway shoes and see what the designers of San Francisco have been up to.

I was blown away by the talent of all of the participating designers and I was able to meet so many wonderful people – everyone from bloggers to people who are revolutionizing the tech side of fashion. I think that aspect is one of the most unique parts of San Francisco Fashion Week, with Silicon Valley just a hop away. I can’t wait to share more photos and what I wore with you!… Read More »

Lightened Up Mini Twice Baked Potato Appetizers

Lightened Up Mini Twice Baked Potatoes Appetizer - cute and without all the extra fat!

Is it weird that Fall makes me feel like having a dinner party? I think it’s because Summer is a time to spend as much time outdoors as possible. Ss the days shorten and the chill falls, it just feels right to crank the oven on full blast and gather your loved ones around a table to break bread. I’ve been feeling the urge to have a dinner party lately, not in small part due to the fact that Pat and I have a new table…. Read More »

Lunafest :: Connecting Women Through Film

Lunafest :: Connecting Women Through Film

I had a chance to attend the LUNAFEST film festival in San Francisco last week with some girlfriends. LUNAFEST is a traveling film festival that features short films that feature women and are directed by women. The whole purpose is to connect women through film and some of the proceeds benefit a cause near and dear to my heart – Breast Cancer Fund. Breast Cancer Fund is revolutionizing our approach to breast cancer research by targeting prevention and environmental changes instead of curing it once it occurs…. Read More »

Maxi’d Out :: Sunset at Ocean Beach

Ocean Beach :: Chambray Shirt + Styling a Maxi for FallOne of my favorite things to do at the end of a long work day is to go to the beach with Maddie and Pat to catch the sunset. I probably didn’t have to tell you that though, because Ocean Beach frequently pops up here on the blog. Even when the nights are cool, the sand stays warm for a few hours after sunset and the lighting. Talk about putting your best self forward…. Read More »

Friday Faves // 10

San Francisco Fashion Week Bloggers Connect Event

 

It’s been so long since I did a collection of my Friday Faves!  Unfortunately I have what we call in residency a “Black Weekend” this weekend. That means I’ll be working all day both Saturday and Sunday. We have a lot of black weekends in residency, but after three hard months with lots of weekends I’m so excited to have two full months ahead where I have every weekend off. Just in case you were wondering, we call those sort of weekends “Golden Weekends”. I’m basically going to be Queen Midas up in here. Sorry for the bad joke, I couldn’t resist.

In other news, I’m looking forward to San Francisco Fashion Week next week! After watching my Instagram feed fill up with snaps from New York Fashion week I’ve been having a terrible case of FOMO. I’m so excited to be hosting an event at SFFW! I hope you’ll join me at Fashion Bloggers Connect on Thursday, September 25th. Get more information and find tickets here.

Fitting Running Into A Busy Schedule

Fitting Running Into a Busy Schedule + Jawbone Up24

People are usually surprised to find out that I run about 20-25 miles per week. Their first reaction is inevitably, “How do you manage to fit that in to your schedule?” Staying active is a big part of feeling healthy for me and even though I’m working 60-80 hours per week and running this little corner of the internet here, it’s something that I make a priority.
